  7. Bus strike called off

    A planned strike by London bus workers which would have disrupted travel to the Notting Hill Carnival on Monday has been called off. 

    Members of Unite at Tower Transit walked out on Friday and were due to stage another strike on Bank Holiday Monday in a dispute over rosters. 

    The union said it was suspending the next strike as a gesture of goodwill following "solid support" for Friday's action.

    It will be dry at first tonight with some long clear spells perhaps leading to some mist patches around Lea Valley.

    However, it will turn cloudier through the early hours, with some occasionally heavy showers pushing north by dawn.

    Minimum Temperature: 15 C (59 F)

    The V&A has acquired an archive of papers and props once owned by Cooper, which show he was less shambolic off stage than he appeared when performing.

    The gag file is among 116 boxes of his papers going into the V&A collection.

    The museum said he used a system for storing his jokes alphabetically "with the meticulousness of an archivist".

  10. Petition to save Fabric nightclub

    A petition to save Fabric nightclub from permanently closing has gained nearly 80,000 signatures. 

    The Farringdon club had its licence suspended following the deaths of two men at the club from suspected drug overdoses

    Resident DJ and promoter, Jacob Hansen, set up the petition to persuade London Mayor Sadi Khan to support the nightclub. 

    Islington Borough Council will review its licence on 6 September.

    I spent an extremely interesting day watching and talking to the mayors of Paris and London. 

     Anne Hidalgo and Sadiq Khan have similar backgrounds. 

    We were told both have mothers who were seamstresses, both come from the immigrant families and both have a politically similar world-view. 

    They both also want to tackle pollution that is blighting their cities and causing thousands of premature deaths.
